Craig International has won a contract with QatarEnergy LNG to source and supply products and services for maintenance, repair, and operations (MRO)

The three-year contract, which has a two-year extension option, will be delivered by Craig International’s Qatar office, supported by the company’s headquarters in Aberdeen.

Since entering the Middle East market in 2015, the company has seen its Middle East business grow rapidly, now accounting for 35% of group turnover.

Craig International’s director of Middle East operations, Steve Gibson, said, “Our dedicated and professional team in Qatar continues to push the boundaries in driving efficiencies in our customer’s procurement processes. We are thrilled to extend our contract with such a major brand in the region and we are looking forward to building and nurturing a mutually beneficial relationship with QatarEnergy LNG."

Increasing headcount

“Having increased our headcount in the Middle East, from five in 2018 to over 70 today and expanded our supply chain, we’re demonstrating our commitment to the local market and are well-placed to meet the increasing demand for smart, efficient, and sustainable procurement," he continued.

“With an increasing focus on the energy transition in the region, there are significant opportunities for our sustainable, digital procurement offering in both the oil and gas and renewables sectors.”

Steve McHardy, joint managing director of Craig International, added, “With our 25-plus years of experience in providing out-sourced procurement that delivers major efficiencies, from our 10 global bases, we’re truly committed to working with the energy industry to streamline procurement and reduce its environmental footprint.”
